Tracking global trends on education leadership standards

Across the globe, numerous jurisdictions have embraced education leadership standards and competency frameworks. As the standardization movement gains momentum amongst policy makers, it has become necessary to systematize and document the development of these frameworks as a global phenomenon.

This Observatory maintains an on-line repository of policy documents, research studies, and related grey literature that focus exclusively on the creation and adoption of leadership standards and competency frameworks. All the information has been organized by country and topics.

We strive to maintain the most up-to-date information on national and local standards and competency frameworks aiming to stimulate conversations between researchers, practitioners and policy makers about standardization in the field of education leadership.
